are doing the right thing and you never know when a carl icahn is going to show up and upset the apple cart and cause a corporation to get that one time share price bump up. but in the long run, it is hard to make your long-term returns. if you have an questions about whether that is happening, i have a new piece of macro economic evidence for you. number one, our public corporations are disappearing. the number of public companies listed on the u.s. exchanges has declined by more than 40% in the last 15 years. if it were a species, we would call it in danger. number two, the life span of a fortune 500 company was about 75 years in the 1920's. it is down to 15 years today. so if you have any doubt that short-termism is harming our corporations, that should be some evidence you think about. you might wonder if there is more going on than you have realized. what are we to do? the good news is, i do see this problem is very fixable, or at least improve global. -- improveable. in 1960, the holding period for a share of stocks was eight years. today is down to around four months. what can w

. we recently saw senator carl levin and john mccain teaming up on something that was a little different, a bipartisan chance of the rules in the senate. some democrats don't like that. all republicans will vote against any filibuster rules. host: how does it works right now and what they want to change? guest: if you filibuster a bill, you have actually got to go to before and do the mr. smith goes to washington kind of thing, you have to stay there until you consider any more. democrat all like that. they don't like how republicans are blocking bills on procedural votes per democrats say we want to just get to vote on appeal. they say we're not banning the filibuster, but when we vote on something we don't want to vote on. a procedural on we want to vote on the bill. if you want to vote on the bill, that is still 60 vote threshold, but let's get to the substance. host: for those outside washington, in order to even consider a bill and debate it, they need 60 votes to get there. guest: yes, always, unless there is unanimous consent to move right to it. we saw that with the fis
